My memories are great of you both after you moved in across from us in Appalachian. I remember how he loved you so and the children and you were his life. I can't imagine the heartache you all are feeling, Joe was always the keeper of his castle and you were his gifts. I lost Gerry about a year after we had seen you and Joe at Judy and Alan's, so I know your lost. I have been twice widowed and now I am married to a man who had been twice widowed too, we know the hurt you are feeling. My sorrow goes out to you all, you will get through this.The Lord doesn't give us more than we can handle, but that doesn't make it any easier now. If you like to talk my phone number is 919-661-2617 and my address is 3037 Whitehart Lane, Raleigh, NC 27606. May the Lord keep you and yours in His loving arms, God bless you.
